1k for one day? sure, ill forge that! :) (in Contests)

TheHatchetman May 12 2007 4:49 PM EDT

Every so often, ill be renting items for 1k, and spending a day forging them. whether it is 1k for a day, or 1k for a month, i will spend one day forging whichever item i rent. First winner is Karn, starting with:

A Set of Chain Mail Leggings [18] (+25) 286,104

TheHatchetman May 12 2007 4:55 PM EDT

further clarification:

A) I will forge what i can for that day (likely between 300k and 500k NW
B) There is no way for me to know who I'm forging for until after I've rented the item
C) If i rent an item that belongs to someone who won within the past 3 rentals, i will rent another, hopefully from someone else, and let the item belonging to the previous winner sit.
D)I will not be forging useless items, or unforgables (duh?)

What ? Only one at a time ? I think this contest is rigged.
How do we know you haven't sent a secret spygram to Novice telling him how to win ?
I think you should forge ALL the items in rentals.
Get back in the box !

very nice idea and follow through.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 12 2007 7:11 PM EDT

You are approved, forge on!

Hum wish I had something worth renting out .

AdminNightStrike May 13 2007 2:02 AM EDT

Tiem to camp rentals :)

TheHatchetman May 13 2007 2:34 AM EDT

This is exactly what I wanted from this! Boo-yah! Total Success. I hoped by doing this I could:

A)Give people free net worth (Yay you guys!)
B) Improve the strength of the items that live in rentals (The ones owned by those with no intention of ever using or selling) for community use
C)Increase the number of 1k rentals in auctions, allowing for a lot more experimentation at very low cost.

And yes, I actually did have this planned out ahead of time :)

TheHatchetman May 13 2007 3:42 PM EDT

finishing at:

A Set of Chain Mail Leggings [18] (+31) 721,083

I will rent another item, whenever i want, and the next winner can expect similar results :)

Enjoy! :)

DreadedTiger [4x20] (-x) May 13 2007 4:47 PM EDT

Currently putting all of my items in rentals for rent for a week a piece at 1k. Thanks!

TheHatchetman May 14 2007 1:14 AM EDT

Next up, defender's AC :)

Starting at:

An Adamantite Cuirass [40] 62,714

Since it is base, ill CM him to make sure it isnt intentionally so before forging.

TheHatchetman May 14 2007 4:38 AM EDT

postponed due to bad timing on my part, ill make sure im on to re-rent the item when it goes back to rentals, should he approve. Otherwise, ill rent another item.

TheHatchetman May 15 2007 1:20 AM EDT

An Adamantite Cuirass [40] (+37) $396,617

Didnt get to finish the last part of the cycle or it'd be +39, but this should help anyway :)

Unappreciated Misnomer May 15 2007 11:45 AM EDT

awesome contest.

TheHatchetman May 18 2007 7:22 PM EDT

today's winner is G Beee with:

A Morgul-Hammer [84x145] (+36) $2,354,414

TheHatchetman May 18 2007 9:25 PM EDT

I just realized, this is the luckiest Morgul in the game, its been forged in two separate contests!
Barzoo's Contest
I won, then instant-upped to G's larger one.
And now, it is forged here.

TheHatchetman May 20 2007 11:36 PM EDT

Postponed indefinitely, for it seems someone has rented all of the 1k items not belonging to himself...

/me doubts he's using a BoNE, a MH, a HoD/C/E, TG, CML, Cloak, MC, 2 ACs, and a EH

Very sportsmanlike. No, I did not make rules against this, nor could I have as I have no place to tell you what you are allowed to rent. But congratulations on successfully ruining it for everyone :)

TheHatchetman May 21 2007 12:33 AM EDT

btw, G's MH ended at:

A Morgul-Hammer [84x198] (+36) $2,768,878

And for the recent act of sabotage against this contest, and taking all the 1k rentals so that they were unavailable to those who would actually use them, It reminds me of something Madrox said in the song "Call Upon Your Gods". Normally, I like to post the quotes with the credit to who said it, but it wasn't exactly PG...

TheHatchetman May 21 2007 3:04 PM EDT

Oops! I jumped the gun, and blamed Ranger for something yet again. He says he rented the items for his farms, and with very few exceptions, I can see how the items he rented fulfilled their worth in rental fees. Usually before renting an item for forging, I'd check all the rented 1k items, to make sure nobody had bought them out (10-12 items for 1k each is really cheap in exchange for 300-500k nw :P) to help their own causes. I even got a CM from someone with a direct quote from Ranger saying he was "eliminating the competition". Only one problem, Ranger apparently has no 1k rentals in there... He CMd me, explaining this very civilly, and he does deserve an apology.

Sorry Ranger, I messed up and acted too quickly.

Contest back on, but items will not be rented when there are an absorbadent amount of 1k rentals rented by one person, so as to stop people from attempting to do what I thought Ranger was doing.
